Jewelry events in Vienna
If you are an art jewelry lover like me, you are probably enjoying this week in Vienna.
Last Night there was the opening of the Eligius Award for Body Jewelry and Jewelry Objects. This event is being organised every tree years, since 2005, by the Federal State of Salzburg and it is Austria’s only award for contemporary jewelry. The exhibition is a cooperation between Kunst im Traklhaus and the MAK, Museum for Applied Arts in Vienna. The exhibition in MAK is showing the shortlisted and the winning pieces of the competition. The prestigious award had been won by my studio colleague Lena Grabher. Congratulations Lena for the great body of work. Exhibition dates: 7 – 25 Sep 2016.
Today in the afternoon, Herbststrasse Kolleg in Vienna, organised a lecture with jewelry artists / makers / designers Herman Hermsen, Peter Vermandere and Tim Carson. Tim Carson made a wonderful performance, while Herman Hermsen and Peter Vermandere brought so many insights into their work.
If you want to see their work, you can visit the exhibition opening tomorrow, the 8th of September, at Galerie V&V Vienna.
I am happy that even more super cool jewelry events are to follow this fall in Vienna.
